    Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. Prayer Group for Engaged Couples in English
    (James Erler and Krystle Frey)
    The COVID-19 crisis has altered the way that each sacrament is administered in the Catholic Church, but none is more affected than the sacrament of marriage. Weddings are traditionally joyous occasions that gather together large groups of loved ones of all ages. As health precautions become stricter for the health and safety of the greater good, engaged couples are now facing cancellations, indefinite postponements or smaller wedding alternatives that were unfathomable just a few weeks ago.
    This is why the Archdiocese of Chicago is offering a weekly virtual prayer group for engaged couples that have felt the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Led by a couple facing the same difficulties, this weekly prayer group will provide a sense of community, solace and reliance on faith that is sure to bring comfort.
    The virtual prayer group will take place on Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. via ZOOM. To register, please click here and select “Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. (James Erler and Krystle Frey | English)”.
